VOTS Podcast review

Gerald is a great host for this podcast. Love his expertise and knowledge of the team and basketball as a whole.
One thing that I think can make this podcast better is adding another person. In my opinion, podcasts are better when there’s at least two people in the room to bounce ideas off of and create a deeper discussion. I know it’s easier said than done but that’s my two cents.

Fast Listen

Great rapport with your guests! I almost feel like I’m there having a beer at a sports bar talking about the games with you all. I enjoy the teasers with the quote of the week. I must admit, though, my favorite part is the discussion of shows/movies and the G-rating. Whatever the topics, the time seems to go quickly!
